A Trip to Paris-Mais Oui!

posted May 9, 2018, 1:27 PM by Janie Watts
Did you ever wish you could jump on a plane and travel to Paris for a few days? So does Ricky, five. Seeing his grandfather's snow globe of the Eiffel Tower, he decides he should accompany his Pap Pap on a brief trip to France. Together, they fly to Paris and experience everything from cobblestones to croissants to Parisians adoring their little dogs. A sightseeing cruise on the Seine takes them to the highlight of the trip, the Eiffel Tower.  There, Ricky and Pap Pap work together to conquer  almost 700 stairs. Ricky learns the power of persistence and the importance of spending time with family.
This charming story is illustrated in bright colors by artist Lyn Martin, who has her work featured in some 35 books. 
Inspired by my grandson's desire to see the Eiffel Tower, I wrote this book, so he could "visit."  I hope you will enjoy the journey there as much as I have enjoyed creating this story. 
Now available at and, and at independent bookstores by special order.
